BURBANK, CA (June 5, 2006) � It�s springtime in London and love is all around.
One lucky lady is about to walk down the aisle but has just met her soul-mate at her
engagement party� at least the best man thinks so. ABC Family will premiere the
original movie BEST MAN, WORST FRIEND, Sunday, July 9 (8:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT).
BEST MAN, WORST FRIEND is a romantic comedy about one man�s journey to find his
way in life, the woman who steals his heart, and the lengths he will go to convince her
that they were meant to be together. The film stars Stuart Townsend (�Night Stalker�),
Seth Green (�The Italian Job�) and Amy Smart (�The Butterfly Effect�).
Olly Pickering (Townsend) was a promising young writer who after his first novel
lost his way and found himself out of the good graces of the publishing world. Now,
stuck at a dead end assistant�s job, Olly doesn�t see a light at the end of the tunnel any
time soon. His outlook towards life drastically changes when he meets Sarah (Smart) at
a friend�s engagement party. Unfortunately for him, Sarah turns out to be his friend�s
fianc�e and his not-so-faithful friend asks Olly to be his best man. With the assistance
of his wacky roommate Murray (Green), Olly tries to show Sarah that he is the only one
for her. Can Olly woo Sarah away before she says �I do,� or will he have just enough
time to finish his best man speech?

as directed by Stefan Schwartz. Chris Auty, Simon Franks, Douglas Hansen, Zygi
Kamasa, Benjamina Marnik and James D. Stern act as executive producers.
